amitkk, 09 Dec 2014lots and lots of tweakingHi Amit,
Good to know that you are getting 8-9 hrs of onscreen battery life. I see it as a ray of hope for getting a good battery backup. Currently, I am getting a battery backup of max 4hrs onscreen with minimal usage and all aps hibernated. I find this hard to manage with.
It will be really awesome if you could elaborate about all the tweaks that you made to achieve this much of onscreen time.
Awaiting your reply eagerly.

amitkk, 09 Dec 2014lots and lots of tweakingHi amit,
Its good to hear that you are getting 8-9 hrs of battery life. I see it as a ray of hope for getting a better battry life. As I said before, I get 3.5-4hrs onscreen time with light use and I find that very difficult to manage with.
Can you please elaborate about all the tweaks you have made? Will be really helpful for all of us.
@all those who dont want anybody to complain about the battery life, may be you people have been using shitty 'smart phones' from the beginning and are used to their shitty battery lives.
Well, I have used smart phones before like htc and nokia, and there is a hell and heaven difference between the battery lives of those phones and this one.
@59fifty, I hope your mom gave you some manners too apart from her phone and money.
Its good that you are getting 19-22 hrs of battery life with moderate use, but not every one is fortunate like you are. I get max 4hrs of onscreen battery life with minimal usage.

You can carry a tiny 2500mAH (AA battery size) Power Bank for emergency. Any capacity bigger will tax you due to its size.
i bet all the people who complains about the asus zenfone 5's battery life have never use a smartphone before XD
All of the people who complains about the Poor Battery life is retarded and i think it's the only first time you had the smartphone because all smartphones suffered this, I used my Mom's Zenfone 5 for a week now and compared it to my phone (Sony Xperia Z) and my Xperia Z only has a slight edge with 1.5 days in moderate used and My mom's Zenfone 5 can last 19-22 hours in moderate used (w/o games) so I think the people who complains about the battery life is a heavy gamer i think even my SONY Xperia Z suffered this problem with heavy use for games it can last for about 6 hours so stop complaining about the battery life maggots.
